Unhappy Cooling Fan Sensor???

I have a 2004 PT Cruiser(non turbo)....I have replaced the cooling fan, as the AC was not working....Well now the car was heating up and took it to the mechanic, and it was a sensor to the cooling fan.
My issue??? Each time I go to any auto part, the sensor they give me it's the gauge sensor, and the sensor he says I need is about $60 dollars...

Does anyone KNOW the exact or proper name for this part?
Each time my car breaks down...I try to buy new parts not used.
thanks

Default Re: Cooling Fan Sensor???

Sensor to the cooling fan??? You could go back to the mechanic and ask him the proper name. The fan has two relays and maybe the coolant temperature sensor but neither should be anywhere near $60. It could also be the high pressure sensor for the A/C, but that wouldn't cause you to overheat.

Ask you mechanic to point out what exact sensor it is because the auto parts store keeps giving you the wrong part. Also, Is the mechanic going to fix your PT? Why doesn't he order the part for you?

Sorry, that still don't help identify what he's looking for.
